If you wish to experience the beauty of the Australian landscape and its fauna than Cleland Wildlife Park is for you. There are plenty of amazing animals to pat and gaze at as you wander around the grounds. Tourists can hold cute, cuddly koalas in their arms or feed the kangaroos with special food that the staff sell them. People can have their photo taken with the koalas and other animals if they wish to. There are various shows during the day so that visitors can learn more about the wombat species as well as the Tasmanian devil.

The aim of the shows is to educate the public about the importance of protecting what is left of the natural environment. If you wish to buy a memento to remind you of your day at the park you can do so from the gift shop at its entrance. It sells all kinds of products such as chocolates, cards, tea towels, handkerchiefs, note books, writing paper, envelopes, coffee mugs and plates. If you are feeling hungry you can eat your packed lunch or indulge and buy it from the park's restaurant during your day out. There are plenty of seats for people to sit and watch the animals wandering around or lying down as they eat. If you require further information you can visit the website at for a fun, educational, day out.
